    I'd bet they'd tell us those monstrous hats they wore were a PITA, and the reason they lost the war(s). ;)

    I can imagine tho, those that saw those hats coming at them, released their bowls at least once
    The Old guard were the baddest of the bad back then.

    Fascinating! Little fellows, weren't they? How would you like to stand for inspection with those hats and uniforms?

    I don't think id call a member of the old guard a " little fellow "
    Honestly if Napoleon invaded the US, we would be speaking French.

    Its over really neat. We all have seen photos from the Civil war and those that fought in it. These are from the time before. by the dates, these guys all were at Waterloo.

    These guys and Napoleon kept the British busy during our War of 1812. Otherwise, that one might have turned out far worse for our side.

    They would have been a big hit at the kentucky derby!

    I saw two really hot girls with big hats made of hair there.
    I have a pic of it somewhere
